politeness that i am still scheerer. [laughter] i sort of feel like the rest of the sandy koufax pitching staff. [laughter] but i did have the privilege to know jack well over several perspectives. i started even more green with the land the constitution when i was 21 years old, 1969. jack, he started when he was 23 years old, 1952. the dates are interesting the book is called the evolution of a southern reporter" evolution is the important part. jack was 23 years old. at 29 he won the pulitzer prize. and in 75 went to the "l.a. times." 1970 went to washington. young man. 65. 65, 70. he was a young man. he accomplished those wonderful stories but when i arrived he was still in into and still based their budget traveling all over with the movement at the time. those were not racially based. and this i learned from the book frankly the last door a jack covered for the constitution was in little rock when eisenhower in the federal troops and their desegregating central high school. as jean patterson said at the memorial service coverage jack was never deceived have a shot -- the same after t
events. sunday as health issues sandy one to find the diagnosis or prognosis you can find health-related policy. my hope is that people will attend to different points of view. number two, the larger information provides opportunities when you accidentally bumped into relevant information. >> bruce williams at the university of virginia media studies program we went to graduate school together bruce and i have been working on this with the first discussion to write something on this topic 20 years ago when he noticed the changes. >> host: of what are you most excited of news dissemination? >> it is the opportunity for voices outside the media agenda to be able to be heard. the greatest most recent example is what role it plays is the era of spring. no doubt that was generated by years of concern of political freedom, economic concern that the ability for the spread is the direct result of the ability of people of mobile technology to share ideas and thoughts city going journalists had don't access there was information coming that juror attention to issues. that happens all the t
happy during sandy. we are able to do things to raise through covenant house and the cooperation of extorting people that went into raised a lot of money, because it actually doesn't take that much money to give a person or doorway of hope. and the last thing i will say on this is, you know, for me i get very upset because when i first became mayor i had a metaphor that i clung to. i used to tell people such an optimistic hopeful person companies to tell people i'm a prisoner of hope. when we walked into city hall seven years ago there were so many challenges and i would try to gird my team up and say we are prisoners of hope. we do nothing but hope. now seven years later my metaphor seems to have changed because i see powerfully transforming things -- happening from the largest parks expansion in century from a down housing market, to double the production of affordable housing, first time in 60 years the populace is going down, it's going up. hotels in downtown and 40 years. so my metaphor has changed and i tell people i'm no longer a prisoner of hope. i am unhinged because i n
that many of these issues ochered. they occur here in a different way after hurricane sandy i paid very close attention to the news. you saw a lot of the same thing this. with in the wake of the storm there would be a wave of panic and society would break down and mob mentality would break down. disaster relief officials were looking for any sign they could find with society breaking down with those voters and usually blowing it out of proportion there were isolated incidents but it was not take deal but it had major ramifications but talk about in the said nora libyans -- citizens of new orleans getting shot because the police assumed they were stealing. it would be nice if there was a period of reflection for disaster relief going forward with the haitian earthquake hit could have been implemented but it is no surprise it did not take place before but it is never too late and a period of reflection now would be a good time. >> three questions. number one, what do you think of the current president? what you think should have happened to those who returned to haiti? what about raw eart
car ride home lying down. not until we got to sandy and and he said you can get up now. just seeing the things outside the window was amazing. i remember the palm trees. we did not have those. the streets that seemed to never end and the buildings to reach this guy, it was amazing. really amazing. >>host: where did you live when you first got here? >>guest: first in l.a. i lived in highland park, northeast los angeles predominately latino. >>host: most the legal? >>guest: i think it was a combination. of lot of immigrant families also legal and illegal. >>host: how did the legal spew the illegals? >>guest: i am not too sure about that. as a child, i don't think i was too aware of that kind of response from the adults. but i do remember being shocked at school that most of the kids were turks skin and looked like me and have last names like garcia and could speak a language i could not speak. that was shocking because they looked exactly like me but they weren't. that was the first time i was really aware of the fact there were latinos but they were different from me. >>host: you wer
. they occur everywhereverywher e. they occur here in a very different way but after sandy you know i was paying very close attention but after the storm is coming up and you saw a lot of the same tropes coming up again. i fear for instance that in the wake of the storm there was going to be a wave of panic or go there was going to be looting and society was going to break down in the mob mentality would take over. people were out there looking for people, the media and people in disaster relief. officials were out there looking for any sign that they could find of society breaking down but the looters coming in and usually blowing it out of proportion. really while there were isolated incidents, as there are anywhere, it wasn't that big of a deal. now in katrina, more like haiti that attitude had major major ramifications. you end up with people innocent new orleanians who had survived the disaster and were just trying to stay alive, getting shot to death by the police because the police assumed that they were stealing something. so that's the long way of saying that it would have be
